Novato Man Cut By Flying Wheel Succumbs Here
Fatally injured Saturday when he was cut in the abdomen by a wheel which flew off an electric grinding machine, John Battista Pialorsi, 41, a laborer, of Novato, died Monday at the Cottage Hospital.
Pialorsi who was employed on the A. Alberetti ranch at Novato, was sharpening an ax on the grinding machine, when a speeding wheel flew off, striking him in the abdomen.
A native of Italy, Pialorsi leaves a widow and several children in that country.
